Florida Marlins

 
The Florida Marlins is one of the well known professional baseball teams in Miami, Florida. It was established in the year 1993 as an expansion franchise. They play for the Eastern Division of the Major League Baseball’s National League. They have won the World Series twice in 1997 and in 2003. The team is often nicknamed as ‘The Fish’.
 
History of the Florida Marlins
 
During the period between 1990 and 1996 the team was preparing themselves for brilliant performance on the bigger scale. They played well at the league level as well as in the playoffs. In the year 1997, they clinched their first World Series title. It was during this time that they had some excellent players in their team. The likes of Bobby Bonilla, Alex Fernandez, Moises Alou, Luis Castillo, Marvin Benard, Edgar Renteria and Livan Hernandez formed a constellation of some of the finest players of the team’s history.
 
Florida Marlins repeated history once again in 2003 when they won the World Series for the second time. This was when in 2003 they defeated the ‘New York Yankees’ in six games. Interestingly, the Yankees were the favorites. The years between 2004 and 2006 saw some vital change within the team. Important players like Rodriguez, Lee, and Urbina were gone and a few new talented players like Miguel Cabrera and Mike Redmond and Carlos Delgado stepped in.
 
The year 2008 was even more enthralling for the Florida Marlins because it witnessed the rise of a bunch of young talented players. These included Mike Jacobs, Dan Uggla, Jorge Cantu, Josh Willingham, Ricky Nolasco and Hanley Ramirez. This was a turning point in the team’s strategic performance.
